Four Seasons Singapore

The Four Seasons Singapore is a luxury five-star hotel right in the centre of Singapore and within easy reach of everywhere you may want to visit, but what would it be like to stay as a vegan guest?

Would we feel like we’d missed out on some of their world famous, high quality hospitality or would we be blown away by their service, exquisite food and vegan friendliness?

Four Seasons Singapore is full of beautiful flower displays from their in-house florist.

The answer is that we were blown away and totally impressed; read on to see why the Four Seasons Singapore got top marks from the Vegan Food Quest!

The Vegan Food:

As soon as we walked into our room, we were greeted by a beautiful platter of juices and crudités, containing varieties of carrots that we’d never even seen before (very exciting for us!)

A beautiful looking, vegan welcome that tasted great too.

Our mission to find, eat and write about the best vegan food in the world (that’s what the Vegan food Quest is all about!) led us to make a dinner reservation at ‘Jiang-Nan Chun’ the Four Season’s amazing Cantonese restaurant.

We don’t want to spoil the surprise for you (can read the full account of our specially created vegan meal here) but it was delicious.

Loved these Monkey Head mushrooms in vinegar sauce, sautéed spinach and tofu at Jiang-Nan Chun.

After dinner, we headed to the Four Seasons’ One-Ninety Bar and Terraza by Javier de las Muelas (master of the award-winning Dry Martini bar in Barcelona).

Amazingly our waitress and the bar manager were vegan, so we enjoyed a couple of very fine mojitos to celebrate meeting like-minded people (and chatted vegan stuff too – a rare treat).

This was turning out to be a very vegan friendly hotel stay, plus the cocktails were exceptional.

Go here and enjoy fabulous cocktails served from vegan hands.

Breakfast was served in the One-Ninety Restaurant and the buffet contained a good range of vegan food for us to eat.

From the salad bar, we selected fresh salad leaves and baby spinach as well as vegetables, we added hummus and babaganoush, rich with olive oil, and a selection of nuts and olives.

Never to early in the day for hummus when you're vegan.

We drank fresh juices and coffee (in beautiful cups) and enjoyed the laid back atmosphere.

The chef also prepared some vegan congee (delicious) and a some vegetable ‘Bee Hoon’ noodles with sautéed vegetables.

The congee came with our favourite choice of toppings, fried shallots, braised peanuts and pickled chillies.

Vegan congee, just how we like it.

The seasoning on the super green vegetable platter was perfect and the vegetables were laden with tasty garlic making them truly wonderful.

Everything we ate was fresh, really good quality and most importantly, delicious (oh and 100% plant-based of course!).

The Vegan Essentials:

Our room was already prepared with non-feather pillows but also a non-feather duvet, meaning that we had a 100% vegan sleeping experience.

We were seriously impressed with this level of service and thoughtfulness.

The spa had a range of products from Thèmaè who confirm that they do not use animal testing and a lot of their range is vegan (just look out for ingredients like honey).

There were also products from 100% vegan company Sodeshi (even the ink used on the packaging is from vegetable sources).

All in all, there was a pretty big opportunity to get some serious vegan pampering and treats scheduled in. Vegan luxury heaven!

There was a small range of soy wax candles from New Zealand based company 'Living Light'.

The in-room amenities were from luxury brand ‘La Botega’, we’re awaiting information about their policy on animal testing and ingredients used.

The Vegan Food Quest Verdict:

Check-in here to experience some world class, high-end luxury, vegan stye. Enjoy the excellent hospitality, the delicious vegan food and great facilities of this classic hotel property right in the centre of town.

Don’t forget to visit the spa for some vegan treatments, or just to stock up on those vegan luxury products.

Finally, enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep in your 100% animal-free bed.

    Hi Vegan Quest 🙂

    We are avid readers of your reviews around the world. Q: what would you like to see resorts/hotels provide for vegans that you don’t see them do? We are working with a hotel in London at the moment on plant-based menus, but they are asking me to advise on USP other than food. What would you recommend?
